About Us

referral card 1 Since 1988 Maple Leaf Childcare Center has been family owned and operated, giving children ages six weeks through twelve years the foundation they need to build self esteem and become life long learners.

Linda and John Moran began their operation in Guilderland, New York, with a licensed home based center that quickly expanded to the Carman Rd child care facility in Schenectady, then licensed for forty-one children, and have now expanded to six centers and a total license capacity of six hundred forty-two children.

Linda and John each share an active role in the daily day to day operation of each childcare center. Linda serves  as Executive Director and John as financial & maintenance director.

Who does Maple Leaf Childcare hire to teach and care for your children?

Our teachers are caregivers who have the ability to nurture young children and provide a high quality child care environment that allows for children to feel the safety and security needed for optimum development.

The selection of teachers and teaching assistants is based on educational qualifications, child care experience, and most of all the ability to nurture children. All employees have undergone a thorough interview process, including a complete background and fingerprint check from NYS, three verbal and three written references, and a medical exam.
